Undecided

It's okay...the app on my phone freezes when I'm watching something, so I can't pause the program. Haven't figured out how to cast from my laptop as windows 10 not really compatible. Prefer my roku and trusty remote!

Used 5-6 times and it no longer works

It worked wow the 5 or 6 times I used it but when I tried it the other day (not having used it for months), it no longer boots up and cannot use it any more. It was purchased Oct 2014 and is now just a month and a bit passed warranty period. Extremely disappointed and will not buy again. I will try to contact google to see if they will honour warranty (doubt it).

Works on my Imac desktop

I cancelled my cable because Chrome Cast works on my Imac desktop. I had to install google Chrome because the Chrome Cast only works with Google Chrome. It does not work with Safari.

Delivers as expected

Device works perfectly. Quality is great. Only con is the setup isn't the most straightforward for laptops and requires a bit of digging through how-to tutorials via blogs/youtube.

Love it!

So easy to set-up and use! works great off of my phone and laptop. Only thing I wish it would do is autoplay netflix. Currently it only plays 1 episodes and resets to the netflix home page. I believe this only happens when using chrome/ macbook.

Perfect

Not sure why this product is only rated in the 3's, must be my people who do not know how to use technology and got upset. Work exactly as expected and more so, easy to use and by far the cheapest product of this kind. Way better then Apple TV in my opinion.

Worst than my wd live

I bought this thing long time ago. I try to used and honestly never worked. Buffering could take at least half hour for a 90 minutes movie. Freezing, problems with audio apps sometimes work. Anyways, I was temted to through it to the garbage but I choose to wait if maybe after several months and updates it worked. How disappointed I feel... There's no difference at all. Same thing. My LG smart tv works flawlessly. My wd live tv always freeze at the end of the movies but at least allow me to watch almost the whole movie but chromecast never ever ever. Good luck if you buy this piece of crap now that will be on clearance because the release of the new one.

It's great

Easy to connect to wifi and get going. Wish it had a remote. was confused at first on how it worked. Load Apps on your phone and your phone then becomes the remote. Just wish it had its own remote like the roku. Still love it though.

Great little utility

We scrapped cable in favour of Netflix and other streaming. Paid for an android box. Quality is hit and miss with that. Using the chromecast through official channels, I watch high def movies on Netflix and high def baseball on MLB.tv Wish I'd bought one years ago now

I have one for every tv

Works great with Netflix, YouTube, and streaming video from websites. They're not perfect, occasionally my phone or tablet loses connection and I can't control what's playing, but that's fairly rare.

Returned

Purchased this device so I could use Netflix on my HDTV. Horrible compatibility with Apple products - had to install numerous "fixes" to work on my Macbook. No user interface (no "onscreen" menu). Content must be "cast" from your computer in order to be displayed on TV. Returned this device the same day, and purchased AppleTV - which I had plugged in and functioning in under 10 minutes.

Not All Bad

I was honestly expecting to be able to easily watch movies from my laptop to the TV but there is a problem with the sound. Sound keeps cutting off. But, using Android devices, watching youtube is really good and smooth.

there is no app on it, but casting videos form android phones and tablets is very smooth. internet connection needs to be high speed, higher than internet connection speed needed for apple TV.

Super product if you're a Netflix or uTube fan

I have used this product for almost a year. At first, I attached it directly to my TV. The obvious issue was that I was limited to the sound system on the TV. After upgrading to a higher speed internet, I decided to try connecting the adapter directly to my home theater system. Now we get great sound when viewing Netflix shows. The adapter works well with the iPad (v2) as well as iPhone 4S and 5S. Certainly worth the small investment (especially since we don't subscribe to regular cable anymore).

Can't get it to work with 5 GHz wifi signal

I am using it with my iphone 5. The biggest problem I have - it does not recognize the 5 GHz wifi signal, only 2.4 GHz. Streaming Netflix is stop and go - very frustrating! I am using a Rogers Hitron wifi dual band modem. I also find the chromecast software installed on my iphone to be very tricky to use. Sometimes the chromecast icon is there, sometimes not. Can't figure out why. I probably will return it to get something that will work for sure with my dual band router.

Does what it is supposed to do well...

Works well for me, casting my HTC one M8 screen to the TV. The streaming is smooth and the sound is in sync. I don't use any of the apps, so cannot comment on that part.

good for the price

I wasn't sure at first if I liked the Chromecast. I debated whether it was worth my time to return it. I did give it some time and after a little while I started to like it. It does have it's limitations, but for $39, you can't really expect perfection. It seemed to take some time to work with my tablet, and I don't know what I did to make it work suddenly, it just did. My biggest complaint, is that when I am casting, I can not rewind. I can pause if needed, but fast forward and rewind don't seem to work. I don't know if this is the devise or my TV. If you don't have a smart TV, I think that this is a great choice without spending a lot of money. You also have more choice of what to watch than on a smart TV since you can cast almost any video from your computer or tablet.

Great buy!

Bought this a week ago. It's amazing for the price. First couple of times I had some connection issues, but I adjusted my wifi router at home and it's been working great since. It's plugged into an Insignia 40" TV and I use a Galaxy S5 and S6. Amazing product! Highly recommended if you want to turn a regular TV into a smart TV.

A Google Product made for Google devices

If you have an Android phone or tablet... and I would assume a Chromebook, then this device is excellent. If however you are tying to use this from a Surface or iPad or just a typical laptop PC then your experience will not be fantastic.

Works as expected

Works great! easy install and easy to use. Everyone should be aware a strong reliable WiFI connection is needed and not all websites can stream nicely to chromecast but most do well. overall worth the money.

Slow and Choppy

Idea is great and setup is easy. But it is slow much of the time with long pauses. Hope this is a software issue that can be fixed with updates, Otherwise you will waste [price]. will be good in future most likely though.

You need to use google browser to cast. Google browser will force u to watch lots of Ad.

Best (price) you'll ever spend on media gear. HD TV+Chromecast+Phone with Netflix/Youtube/Kodi=endless high quality experience. And the Chromecast is totally discreet. I love not having another box set and controlled cluttering up my space.

If you like watching movie files or wish you could put what you are seeing on your PC to the TV, then this is the device for you. The apps are getting better and better, I can run it through my PC, my galaxy or my PC via galaxy...doesn't matter. I haven't had any issues as of yet and it streams flawlessly.

Best [price] spent!

We bought a cheap no-smart 49" and then added the Chromecast. Now we have a smarter tv. Play youtube. Share anything from any device basically. It can lag in certain applications but overall and for the price I'd recommend to anyone.
